Today marks the end of our second project, Project Consume. During this project, the majority of the time was spent researching about a specific consumer product, specifically the life cycle. Most companies weren’t transparent and as a result making the research process more difficult. This project was about consumerism, sustainability, and perspective. We started this project by learning about the three lenses of sustainability: environment, economy, and equity. In addition, we learned about the product life cycle starting from extraction all the way to disposal. We also learned to evaluate the credibility of sources. In science, we learned about the different elements on the periodic table and the molecules that make up hydrocarbons. We also looked at alternative packagings and lastly, the guiding question “Is Sustainable Choices important?” I think sustainable choices are important for a very simple and straightforward reason: we cannot maintain our quality of life as human beings, the ability for life on Earth, or Earth’s ecosystems unless we comprise it.
